No matter what your stance is on shopping and fashion, the fact of the matter remains we need to wear clothes every day. Whether you care what you wear or not, it’s still a basic human need. And sometimes we get so caught up on what to wear on the outside, we forget how important our intimates wardrobe is. Because if you’re not feeling great from the inside out, what’s the point of all those fly clothes anyway?
Having bras that fit well and provide support is extremely important. There’s even a chance you don’t know your proper size. Even if you do, going for a fitting once a year is key because you can fluctuate very easily. And don’t think having one bra in your lingerie drawer is going to do the trick, either. It’s good to rotate your bras and wear them only about three times before washing so you don’t wear them out too quickly. But we know you’re on a budget and need to stick to the essentials, so these are the five bras every college girl should own.
T-Shirt Bra: This is your everyday bra – smooth, comfortable and can be worn with your more casual clothing.
Push-Up Bra: No matter your cup size, a push-up bra is always great for making you feel a little sexier in low-cut styles.
We Love: OnGossamer Mesh Bump-It-Up Bra
Strapless Bra: This is a must for dressing up and summertime. Toss the uncomfortable, ill-fitting style you currently have and grab one you actually won’t mind wearing all day (this one is a dream).
Convertible Bra: Perfect for tanks and dresses, this bra is both functional and super comfortable. Try to find one that converts to halter, racerback and criss cross.
Sexy Bra: Whether this buy is for yourself or you want to give your partner a fun surprise, having a flirty, sexy bra is always a must. Let it peek out from under sheer shirts and tanks if you dare.
